at CES 2014, samsung did not disappoint, revealing the world’s first and largest curved ultra high definition (UHD) TV. the expansive 105-inch display offers a movie theatre aspect ratio of 21 x 9, projecting a panoramic image that has a truly cinematic quality, thanks to the integration of samsung’s auto depth enhancer which delivers 3D effects; and PurColor™ technology that renders a more vibrant and rich picture. featuring 4K content, the TV boasts 11 million pixels producing a life-like viewing experience.

the greater 2014 UHD TV line-up by samsung includes: the new U8500 series, giving consumers the option of splitting the large-panel into a total of four screens; the S9 which brags the largest UHD display on the market at 110-inches;  and U7500 series with models that exhibit a thinness of 1.2 inches, along with a narrow 0.28-inch bezel, to create a panel-only illusion.
